Feature (late) Friday #4 - Blackout-ComixSorry again that I'm late. My sister is visiting this weekend and I haven't seen her in over a month for the first time so I was kinda distracted.Feature (late) Friday #4 - Blackout-Comix in Personal More Like This
But anyways, today's feature goes to pony-sculpting extraordinaire, Blackout-Comix :iconblackout-comix:!
This guy has got some mad skills at making pony sculptures! He can make them very spot on smooth and although they are kinda more bulbous and round-looking, they are quite accurate to how they appear in the show! I mean look at the Rarity he made here:
He's inspired me with my own sculptures but I am afraid I could never be quite as good as he is. And right now he's working on Princess Celestia..........man I can't wait to see how that turns out!
But why the hay does he only have like 600ish watchers?!? This guy deserves a lot more than that, heck he deserves more than I do! Did I also mention he's the son of the pony plush-making extraordinaire, WhiteDove-Creations? Yup! He must get his artistic
Feature (late) Friday #2 - DustySculpturesSorry I'm a day late. College is a female dog.Feature (late) Friday #2 - DustySculptures in Personal More Like This
Anyways, today's feature goes to someone who really could use more attention and it gets me how she only has a couple hundred! It's the very talented dustysculptures:icondustysculptures:! She makes the most amazing sculptures using Sculpey clay and it's the same kind I use! I really wish I was as gifted as her cuz look at this:
Amazing! The pose, the colors, the whole nine yards, it's a perfect 3D pony! Not a custom, a fully-sculpted pony! And the other amazing thing is that she doesn't usually have to paint them, she uses the right color of paint for every piece and even makes the cutie marks and eyes out of clay!!
I could go on with a bunch of other ponies she's sculpted but there are far too many so go check her out RIGHT NOW!! And watch her...........NOOOOOOOOOOOW!!
EDIT: Turns out Dusty is a dude.
My plea to the fandom (PLEASE READ)Ok, I've been silent about this for far too long but with what I've been hearing lately, I cannot keep it quiet any longer. I have to get this off my chest. This is important for ANYONE in the My Little Pony fandom so you all had better read carefully.My plea to the fandom (PLEASE READ) in Personal More Like This
I've been hearing some rumors that some of the DHX staff have considered leaving the show because of all the hate against Equestria Girls.... There you go guys. You keep hating and we'll lose enough of the show staff that they may not be able to continue it all because you were being judgmental hypocrites.
Seriously, I lose a ton of respect for someone whenever I hear them say something negative thing about Equestria Girls. At first it was just a little bit of fandom butthurt but if it's gotten to the point where some of the DHX staff are irked by us, then action needs to be taken. And it is true, fans are complaining way too much about Equestria Girls. I've heard some people whine and literally give Hasbro and

Well, six cuz the last one was actually a reprise of the Morning in Ponyville song from the beginning, but holy moley on a cannoli that was a lot of songs!

There went all my hopes and dreams of seeing the Mane6 staff getting hired by Hasbro to actually make an official MLP game for them one day. These people, these creative and talented people had so much going for them and worked their asses off to make an ORIGINAL project with ABSOLUTELY NO MONETARY GAIN and then they get a slap in the face and kicked right out the door without any thanks for trying.
Hasbro, I hate to say this, but the more you throw the law at us like this, the more chances you have for free promotion and fan appreciation thrown straight out the window. You're going to slowly lose some supporters and you're going to lose a lot of money in the end too...

What? Oh come on guys, it's not that big of a deal! I actually have sometimes expected something like this would happen! If anyone deserves it, it's definitely Twilight. I mean she's gifted, she's smart, she's been training under Princess Celestia for quite some time now, she's the Element of Magic, I'd say she's more eligible than anyone else!
And don't give me any of this "Durrrhurr, Twilight's a Mary Sue now!" crap because you don't know that yet. Megan McCarthy has specifically stated that Twilight's personality will not change therefore she can't become a 'Mary Sue' character. Alicorn's aren't Mary Sue's anyhow, you can't just assume that

They are so smooth and 3D and look exactly what a character would look like in a Pixar-styled movie of MLPFIM if you'd ask me!

"Angry Birds are the bane of gamers and real games. They have achieved undeserved popularity, and you dare support these hellspawn? Damn You! Sorry, my inner gamer is talking. Please don't ban me again."

I don't care if you don't like Angry Birds or anything, but keep your comments to yourself! I have a handful of friends on this site who don't like MLPFIM and they don't dare come to me saying they hate my art or that I should go back to Transformers, they just lay low and probably stop watching me.

New front page system?Honestly I don't know how people will respond to this? Negative or positive? I don't know, all I know is I have to say it.New front page system? in Personal More Like This
I have already made a poll about it and it seems the majority weren't even aware there was a new system, most people actually thought it was a bug...says a lot about it already. Anyway... I have sent and inquiry and I can now officially confirm DA is running a new front page system. Let me explain what it basically does. The 'popular page' called so because popular works are featured there has changed. The new system is designed to give a leg up to more 'undiscovered artists'. Basically? the system no longer works according to favourites like the old system did. More obscure categories are granted priority over more popular ones e.g Fanart-anime manga- movies TV would be replaced by a image with a lower fav count from Fanart-digital-vector. Before I get lynched by people accusing me of being annoyed/jealous because my own work is no longer featured on the front pag

Meanwhile I've been writing the next SYAC story for after this upcoming one ends. Yeah, this one I'm working on now won't finish debuting till after the new year. That's how far in advance I'm working on these. lol. Also per suggestions from comments online I've been trying to be more careful with characterization and with cliffhanger pages.
The next SYAC story is gonna be a bit sad, and I applogize but I kinda feel like I need to tell it. However, to make up for it the one after this next one will be a comedy! So bear with me!

Super Mario 3D Land ReviewI've been waiting for this game for such a long time, and it really is a breath of fresh air on the 3DS's currently limited gaming library.Super Mario 3D Land Review in Personal More Like This
The basic gameplay will be familiar to anyone who's played Mario before. You proceed though various levels, stomping enemies, collecting star coins, and working your way to the flagpole goal. There are occasional castles, haunted houses, airships and the like to break up the level structures, and every level introduces some new gameplay mechanic and is uniquely styled.
Even though this is a 3-D mario game, there are a lot of 2-D elements to it. I kinda liken it to Super Mario Galaxy 2 in that there are these big open worlds you explore, but from time to time the camera zooms to a 2-D perspective. It's really a nice mesh of the old and the new.
The controls take a little getting used to, though. Both the A and B buttons jump while the X and Y buttons control running, tail whips, fireballs, etc. There's also a "super jump" ripped from Supe
25 Things I learned being a Comic Artist in 2011The following list contains intense amounts of SARCASM for the purpose of satire and humor.25 Things I learned being a Comic Artist in 2011 in Personal More Like This
1. Never offer artistic advice or hint at the possibility that the way young and inexperienced groups of artists work might in some way be flawed.
2. Every comic must be inherently drawn better and be funnier than the last.
3. Humor is NOT relative/subjective.
4. Nothing is funny. Ever.
5. Even the most trivial aspects of your comic must be taken 100% seriously.
6. Failure to incorporate conflicting suggestions for improvement = incapable of accepting criticism.
7. Trying to quelch flame wars also inexplicably = incapable of accepting criticism.
8. Trying to explain your artistic decisions = incapable of accepting criticism.
9. Having lots of watchers = having an inflated ego.
10. Reaching the frontpage = getting Daily Deviation.
11. Every character you draw (even ones you do for commission/jobs) = your personal opinions and beliefs which you must obviously follow rigidly IRL.
12. Never change y

Having the chat window up was very beneficial because I could read all sorts of suggestions on what to do while I was setting up. And hey! I found redstone within 40 minutes of starting completely new! That's gotta be something, right?
The second game I started was actually the first I ever began. I had previously moved away from my nice comfy home to try and build the ultimate monster free safe house. It wasn't going well so I wanted to get back to my regular home, hence my awkward trips through the water and burning of trees to see where I was. T
1 Year of SYACIn January 2011 I started a small series called "So You're a Cartoonist" with the intent of only doing one or two of them. Due to the "controversial" nature of the first couple strips (note that I use quotation marks there) I received a lot of internet attention and before I knew it, the small series of annoying observations turned into a full blown web comic.1 Year of SYAC in Personal More Like This
Had I been able to foresee the series's popularity, I probably would've done a lot of things differently. I wouldn't have started by having so many episodes picking on things like Anime fanart and responses to trolls, and I would have done a much better job of setting up the comic's world and characters. As it stands right now, I"m still uncertain about what direction this series is going, though I am settling into a comfortable groove.
For me the success of the series has been a double edged sword. On the one hand it's helped me jump out of internet obscurity, opened up new comic opportunities, and gained me a huge online follow

I don't hate Anime and MangaYou know, just because I am critical of Anime and Manga devotion, doesn't mean that I hate Anime and Manga. You're looking at a guy who owns around 32 hand painted cels from his favorite Anime shows and movies, has a row of Anime/Manga action figures standing perfectly in a row on my shelf in front of my computer, and has a rather extensive Anime DVD collection and two bookshelves of Manga.I don't hate Anime and Manga in Personal More Like This
My criticism of Anime/Manga is less about the material itself, and more the common practice of style mimicry by my fellow artists. And even then, it's more that I am critical of it being used WRONG than the fact they're using it at all. I don't mind looking at Anime and Manga artwork, and I don't think it's wrong for people to MAKE Anime and Manga inspired artwork.
But I DO think it's wrong for people to copy the big eye'd style without understanding what goes into creating it, or how to use it properly. Too often when we're young we copy what we see first, and since Anime and Manga are so pervasive
Updates for 02/26/12Not too much new today but there were a few things I wanted to touch upon. First up some cool Mac software.Updates for 02/26/12 in Personal More Like This
After posting my SYAC comic about pirating, a DA user pointed me in the direction of a program called "crossover." Basically this program simulates running PC programs in a Mac environment without the need of a partition or installing Windows. The program costs about $40, but they have a 30 day trial and on a whim I decided to see if it worked. Lo and behold, within minutes I was playing one of the 2-D sidescrolling games I made about 5 years ago on my PC. Ahh the nostalgic memories of trying to program and art direct. When I switched to a Mac I had to leave behind a lot of small, but helpful, programs. Thus far I haven't really "needed" them to make any art, but it would be nice to be able to still use them and this program helps with that. Maybe during one of my upcoming livestreams I can broadcast some of the games I used to make?
Speaking of livestreams, I was thinking of doi
SOPAA few months back I wrote a journal about an internet censorship bill that was looking to be passed in the congress. The bill was poorly written, but the broadness of the wording freaked a lot of internet dwellers out. People were scared their favorite websites would be censored or removed completely. Thankfully the bill didn't pass. Unthankfully a new version is going up for vote now and this time it's getting far more support.SOPA in Personal More Like This
SOPA = Stop Online Piracy Act
Once again it's very broadly written and could have very serious implications if it gets passed. The bill is written with the expressed purpose of being able to take legal action against online piracy in foreign markets. It seems likely that the bill is meant to snub out piracy sites like ThePirateBay.org, but the wording is so broad that it's very possible that it could have serious repercussions elsewhere.
Yesterday the bill was supposed to be voted on, but it was delayed due to a filibuster. It's currently set to be voted

The vibrant digital paintings of alicexz are fiery, emotional, and incredibly memorable.
The colors of her creations (mostly portraits of popular TV and Film characters) are unusually vibrant, which is remarkable considering how layered they appear to be. It’s sort of like what manga characters might look like if painted by one of the Dutch Masters. And this artist exhibits just the right amount of quirkiness to leave us wanting to know more: she has a penchant for painting redheads. But, then of course, there’s a lot of red and golden fire burning through most her artworks.

It's been a month or so since my last journal devoted to comparing the Monster High doll series to the (at the time) upcoming Equestria Girls line. Well now I've picked up quite a few of the Equestria Girls dolls myself and I can make a much better judgment as to whether and how they stack up to Monster High.In Defense of Monster High Pt 5 Celestia Ghoulia in Personal More Like This

In Defense of Monster High Part 4- Jinafire LongFirst of all, a HUGE thank you to everyone who took the time to read, comment, and give my foray into non-pony related content a chance. My impetus behind this series of journals was pushing back against many MLP fan's perception that the Monster High influence was Equestria Girls' biggest fault. Obviously I disagree, and I believe that, quite the opposite, what Monster High is a toyline that others should absolute emulate in terms of quality and design competency. It really means a lot to me that you all have taken the time to give these journals, and Monster High, half a chance! Thanks for reading!In Defense of Monster High Part 4- Jinafire Long in Personal More Like This
Over the past few days we've discussed both the aesthetic impressiveness of Monster High as well as the quality of the toys themselves. Today I'd like to wrap up by looking at both of these qualities in one doll- Jinafire Long, the golden dragon from Fanghai (If you haven't noticed already, puns abound in the Monster High universe!)
In Defense of Monster High Pt 2- GhouliaYesterday I touched upon the idea that the real failing of Equestria Girls, at least insofar as the toyline, is that it is geared towards one specific goal- getting a piece of the monster-sized success of Monster High while ignoring the details that have made MH so successful.In Defense of Monster High Pt 2- Ghoulia in Personal More Like This
With the next few installments, I want to look at these details, and how they relate to making the individual dolls so excellent and the line so successful. First up- theming and attention to detail, both of which are, in my opinion, the keys to Monster High's success and factors which set them apart from most every other toy on the market.
Each MH doll is a character with not only a distinct, canon personality, but is also based on a monster or fictional creature from folklore or horror films. My example today happens to be not only my favorite character, but also represents my favorite monster as well. Meet Ghoulia Yelps, the zombie and smartest ghoul in school:

Factors that the Equestria Girls are severely lacking despite a ready-made fandom, backstory, characters, themes and motivations.
Today we'll continue taking a look at the use of theming and details, while also examining how what's under the dol
Monster High Review- Spectra VondergeistThis weekend Mr. Kitties and I traveled home to visit the parents, sell one of our homes, and do a lot of lounging around the family hop garden. Along the way we stopped at a local Walmart and I found the latest doll in Monster High's Ghouls Night Out line; the ghostly Spectra Vondergeist! I already picked up the five-Monster High Review- Spectra Vondergeist in Personal More Like This
Just look at this doll! How could I possibly resist? Spectra is one of the few MH characters I don't have multiples of, which is a failure on my part given how beautiful she is. As a ghost, Spectra has a wonderful white-to-transparent color scheme and dresses is gorgeous, bright purple hues. I've no doubt Rarity would agree that Spectra is hands-down the ghost with most fashion sense!

A fractal artist meeting is being planned for 25-27th June, 2014 to be held in San Sebastian (Spain) and you are all invited!
The venues for this 3 day event have already been booked and invitations are going out to the fractal artist worldwide. This is a chance to meet and vacation with other fractal artists while also sharing in a day of lectures to learn more about fractal artistry, the history of fractal art and the tools we use.
A few US artists got together informally a few years ago and had a terrific time meeting each other and sharing ideas. We decided that the next one needed to be in Europe so that more people could attend.
